Even though Virat Kohli is not the regular captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2023. But, the truth is also that he is captaining for the last two matches. And, who is the main captain of the team i.e. Faf du Plessis, he is in the role of Impact Player.
Captain hit, penalty full
So far in IPL 2023, the captaincy of Virat Kohli has been 100 percent winning. That is, the last 2 matches that the team played under his captaincy, they have won both. But, in the midst of this superhit captaincy, he has also had to face the brunt of slow over rate.
Virat Kohli captained for the first time this season against Punjab Kings. There he won the match and he was not even fined for slow over rate. But while captaining in the second match against RR, Kohli got stuck. RCB was charged for slow over rate, in which captain Kohli suffered a loss of Rs 24 lakh. At the same time, according to the rules, the remaining players of the team were fined Rs 6 lakh or 25 percent of the match fee.
What happened under the captaincy of Virat was the second mistake of RCB regarding the slow over rate. Earlier, during the match against LSG at the beginning of the tournament, the team was stuck in slow over rate. Then the captain of that match, Faf du Plessis, was fined Rs 12 lakh.
Now another mistake will be heavy
Now, if RCB’s slow over rate system is not improved in the next match as well, then the captain will be fined Rs 30 lakh and banned for one match. At the same time, a fine of Rs 12 lakh or 50 percent of the match fee will be imposed on the remaining players of the team.
Slow over rate against KKR will have to be avoided!
She is going to play her next match on her own home ground. The competition is with KKR. Looking at the kind of captaincy Virat’s performance has been till now, it seems to be a full guarantee that the franchise will make him the captain in this match as well.
If the team is doing well under the captaincy of Virat, then there is no problem in keeping him as the captain. But, at the same time, the entire RCB platoon will have to take care that the charge of slow over rate is not imposed again. Because, if this happens, being the captain of the team, whether the team wins or loses, Virat will have to face a ban, which will not be good at all from RCB’s point of view.
